  1. I've corrected the notification settings in Crowdin. I'm looking out for my first notification email.
  2. Triggered by the remarks coming from some other translators, I decided to check the latest activities in Crowdin. I noticed that some new strings have been introduced and that the automatic translations from Bing have been pushed through. Oh dear, oh dear. MT may be nice with words, but definitely not good with sentences. Rick, I had to make some changes. Could you approve these? And please next time consider to send the Crowdin translators a brief notification that new strings are ready for (proper) translation.
  3. When saving (overwriting) an existing jpg file that resides in a OneDrive managed folder, I get the following error: The first line would translate as follows: An invalid name request has been made. The requested name cannot be obtained at this time. "Save as" using a different file name works without problems. (Currently my workaround) Any ideas?
  4. And counting... I guess this is where the upside of the Store app has its downside. Automatic updates, be it at a couple of days delay. I'm experiencing the same with other apps. It's another factor to count in in choosing the Store App or the installer version.
  5. @Rick Brewster I misread the instructions. I thought that a folder named paint.net App Files would be created (automatically by the App) and that I would have to place my Effects, etc. in there. I've created the folder myself and placed inthere the Effects etc. and all is well now. @warlordnik I purchased paint.net App yesterday from NL without a problem. Do you have a valid credit card associated with your MS account?
  6. No overwriting or removing the existing installation. The Store App is added. You can keep both versions installed alongside. I noticed that if either of the two is running, the other won't start as well.
  7. Fantastic! I purchased immediately, if only to test the Dutch localisation. Effects seem to not work on my Dutch language W10 PC. The created folder is translated into Dutch language: paint.net gebruikersbestanden. I've copied the folders "Effects" and "FileTypes" in there, but paint.net W10 App does not show the plugins. Also, if I open the Palettes folder, this created folder is named Paletten which is also the Dutch translation. I checked in Crowdin and found the following: - paint.net User Files is translated into paint.net gebruikersbestanden (I did that, as did all other translators) - Palettes is translated into Paletten (I did that, as did all other translators) - Effects I cannot find - FileTypes I cannot find either I probably need te revert these two translations, don't I? Still there remains the difference between the mentioned paint.net App Files and the string in Crowdin paint.net User Files.
  8. I'd like to make a case for an enhanced way of storing and managing plugins. Currently paint.net plugins (v4.0.x) must be downloaded and unpacked in the subfolders Effects, FileTypes ans Shapes within the paint.net installation folder. The fact that this is a manual job is not convenient for those who are less computer savvy The fact that copying files into subfolders of the installation folder requires Administrative rights is a blockade for users living in a restricted computer environment, such as Education or larger companies Of course it would be best if paint.net would have a Plugin manager where the user can select desired plugins and downloading, installing and updating would be taken care of automatically. I figure such will be quite a project to take up. An intermediate solution could be that paint.net allows for alternative plugin locations, e.g. C:\Users\username\paint.net.ext\Effects\etc. This ready accessible folder would allow restricted users to download and store plugins without the help of an Administrator. As a second alternative location I´d like to propose C:\Users\Public\paint.net.ext\Effects\etc. With both alternative plugin locations in action, it is possible to have a basic set of plugins installed for all users plus additional ´personal´ plugins available per user. Maybe such an enhancement would be possible within a less lengthy development scheme.
  9. Hello all, In relation to "Image type not recognized" issue, I have come to the conclusion that Rick is rightfully making objections to the debugger image hijack method I mentioned above. I have removed the technical details from my posting above. The best way to have paint.net become the default program for editing images is described in the posting by rpsgc
  10. The problem has been fixed bij the Crowdin support team
  11. Okay, my prime concern was with the Dutch translations that are no longer present. Good that you checked yours and also others. They are there still. So Rick, did something occur with the Dutch and French resx files in Crowdin?
  12. Rick, I noticed that all pdn-translations have disappeared from Crowdin. Do you have an explanation for this? Stephan
  13. Alternative solution (save the following lines as a *.reg file): Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 REMOVED Whenever mspaint.exe is called, PaintDotNet.exe is actually executed. This trick is used by NotePad2 to replace notepad.exe and also by SysInternals ProcessExplorer to replace the standard Windows Task Manager.
  14. Rick, Could it be that you forgot to approve (updated) translations? Stephan
  15. Check the system requirements at http://www.getpaint.net/download.html Your W7HP/SP1 sounds alright. Depending the version of .NET on your system, you may need an update to 4.5, but that will be taken care of automatically during the install.
  16. The sad thing is that rmh2468 has a valid point. The advertisements on the homepage attract far more attention than true download link.
  17. Or just do "Image - Canvas size..." (Alt-I, S) and adjust the pixel size width and height to your liking. Make sure that the Anchor is set to Middle. No plugin required.
  18. Aahh, I missed it. I just made a few changes. No worries: Cosmetics only.
  19. I've tried a number of Screen Capture programs that I use from time to time: Standard Windows [WIN-PrtScn] Window Clippings PicPick GreenShot XnViewMP Screengrab Firefox extension For each, copy-paste worked just fine. As #softlion is mentioning "drag-and-drop", I did some further testing: Firefox - drag-and-drop image works fine Chromium - drag-and-drop does not work Internet Explorer - drag-and-drop does not work Hmmm, what other applications would I want to drag images from.... But should we expect this to work? Isn't it up to the 'drag-from' program to make something available or not to the 'drop-into' program?
  20. To me, it looks like the copy-paste issue has been properly fixed. I've just tried it on my W8.1 64-bit PC using the latest versions of Chromium, Firefox and Internet Explorer. With each browser I visited a different web site and (obviously) copied a different picture. All copied images pasted [Ctrl-Alt-V] perfectly in today's paint.net.
  21. I've just made one more small correction. Please go ahead with the approval.
  22. This happened to my installation as well. The UI language being Dutch, the language selection menu actually pointing to Portugese.
  23. See sceencapture of an example where the OneNote icon in RocketDock has been replaced by the PdN icon. Of course it's easy to blame RocketDock. After all it's old, no longer maintained and it does have its peculiarities. But this this has come up on and off since recently. Is it related to Paint.net v4, some Windows 8.1 update, Rocketdock getting lost on its icons, ...? I cannot tell, but I think it suspicious that it's always the PdN icon that is the replacing icon. Edit 3/3/2014 - Added second screenshot demonstrating another occurrance of the phenomenon
